Looking for the prettiest and most flattering plus size wedding dresses ever?! You’ve come to the right place. Feeling your best in your wedding dress is a total must.

You want a dress that accentuates and highlights your incredible curves and makes you feel like a million bucks. But before we dive into our favorite gowns, there are a few things you’ll want to think about:

  1. What aspects of your figure do you want your wedding dress to accentuate and highlight?
  2. Where is your wedding taking place? On the beach? In the mountains? How warm or cold will it be?
  3. Are straps non-negotiable, or are you open to strapless wedding dresses?
  4. How much skin do you want to show? Looking to bare it all? Or do you prefer a more conservative look?

Once you’ve walked through each of these questions, you’ve basically done most of the legwork to figure out what styles of plus size wedding dresses are best for you. Now we can scroll on down and go gown shopping!
